Xerium Technologies, Inc., a leading global provider of industrial consumable products and services, recently launched Blue Diamond, a new generation of advanced polyurethane roll cover technology for superior performance on the harshest of press nip conditions. Blue Diamond roll covers are specifically engineered to deliver exceptional stability in the most demanding nip conditions providing long-running dewatering performance and superior resistance to groove closure, which is critical for consistent venting performance. The new roll covers are available in grooved and drilled patterns and include the company’s exclusive Fusion bonding system for additional life.
“The rolls technology team has developed this new generation of polyurethane for those demanding nip conditions where conventional covers suffer from premature groove closure. Blue Diamond’s exclusive formulation delivers stable performance and long life which is especially important on covers with grooved and drilled patterns for enhanced dewatering performance,” said Mr. Bill Butterfield, EVP and CTO of Xerium. “As always, our mission is to develop innovative technology to help our customers achieve new performance levels with reduced operating costs.”
